To be a moffie is to be weak, effeminate, illegal. 1981, South Africa’s government is in conflict on the Angolan border. Like all white boys, Nicholas must complete a two year military service. The threat of communism and the “black danger” is at an all-time high. But just when fear pushes Nicholas to accept unspeakable horrors, a tender relationship with another recruit becomes as dangerous as any enemy fire.


South Africa, 1983. In 2015, The Endless River became the first South African film to be nominated for the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival. His newest feature, Moffie, premiered at the Venice Film Festival and won the Mermaid Award for best LGBTQ-themed film at the Thessaloniki International Film Festival.
